Somewhere between the mixed harmonies of Lady Antebellum and the bluegrassy tendencies of Rend Collective and Mumford & Sons, we find One Way Home. The earthy tones on this project make it a perfect soundtrack, say, for a long, windows-down trek along the Blue Ridge Parkway. The musicianship on Front Porch (buy) is nothing short of stellar, no need for auto-tuners and Roland TR-808’s for an excuse to turn it up—let the silky-smooth vocals and percussive thumps confidently guide your way. The title track, “Crossroads,” and “Truth” provide the fuel for momentum, while haunting tracks like “Beautiful Heart” and “Hopeless” will be pleasing to the ear of Alison Krauss fans across the board. From their front porch to your car stereo or headphones, no matter where you’re jamming to this album, it’s sure to get your feet a-stompin’ and your heart a smilin’.
